    Mounts on the correct sides? Are you 100% sure? Not 99 but 100%.

    Did you modify the K-member as required by the Schumacher mounts on a 74 slant 6 k-member? If so, did you measure correctly?
    You must shorten the driver side slant 6 mounting position on the k-frame to use those conversion mounts. Just making sure.

    I have a 74 duster, went from slant 6 to 318, drivers side metal on k member has to be cut off and a 9/16 hole drilled
